Networking is vital for all computer-using organizations. No computer can be thought of as a stand-alone computer. Organizations need to analyze and develop the optimal network structures with consideration of their hierarchical structures. Their needs are to be analyzed as well. The topology and the technology of the network to be developed needs to be considered and then planned. This thesis presents the different types of network topologies and network technologies. The structure of a Brigade is analyzed and different topology combinations for different levels hierarchical structure are analyzed. The flow of the network traffic and network load is optimized using Extend v4, a general purpose simulation tool. The results show that the optimal network topology for the subject Brigade is Star topology at all levels. The type of technology to be used is Fiber Distributed Data Interface technology.
